Over the final 5 months or so, Sami Zayn has been the discuss of the WWE Universe. He’s not the largest star within the ongoing Bloodline saga—that title belongs to Roman Reigns—however the faction’s run has performed extra for The Honorary Uce than anybody else concerned. There’s an argument to be made for Solo Sikoa. After all, he was known as as much as the principle roster to work with the group. Still, everybody appears to like what Zayn has managed to do since initially feeling tacked onto this storyline. WWE followers will bear in mind the current Trial of Sami Zayn as among the best segments in Raw historical past, and Triple H has woven one of many high long-term storylines in current reminiscence.
